Edwin With Sack as Christmas Ornament

I have my DT project for
to share with you today.
This weeks challenge is:
For my project today I have used an old Christmas Card box and cut an opening on the top. If you look close you can see that I have added a loop of string pearls at the top to use as a hanger for the tree for you could just sit this around the house as a decoration. 
Stamps: Edwin with Sack and the stamp inside of my little card box is Winter night background. Both stamps are from Magnolia-licious.
Coloring Medium: Copic Markers, very light distressed inks around some of the paper edges. I have also sanded my edges to give the box a bit of a rustic feel.
Papers: Dream Street Papers, Bo Bunny. I have used bazzill cardstock and put Snow Tex with glitters and clear beads on top of it to give it some texture.
Accessories: string pearls, ribbon, snowflakes and added glitters and snow-tex to them for added texture. I have used Stickles on parts of the background image. I have also used glitter yarn on the inside of the box around the background image.
